NintendoSoup: The Kirby series has been going strong for 25-plus years. Over 20 titles. Over 30 million units sold. It’s been a bonafide staple of the Nintendo library since Kirby’s Dream Land graced the Game Boy in the Summer of 1992. In the last few years, however, the franchise has moved away from a traditional 2D platformer and gotten more gimmicky. Robots, yarn, drawing on canvas. Lots of interesting ideas. Nothing that really stuck with me though.
